With FRIENDS hitting select movie theaters for multi-night binges, Fathom has taken their celebration to the next level: a real-life Ichiban, lipstick for men! (And in case you want to see the sitcom on the big screen, there are still select tickets available now.)

As you may remember Joey did a commercial for Ichiban (that only aired in Japan), promoting the bright blue lipstick. (Unfortunately for Chandler, the spot was so memorable, it was easy for Joey to realize that his buddy hadn’t actually watched his reel.) Read more

FRIENDS often had long-running jokes over the course of the show’s decade run—the benefit of 200-plus episode and a core cast that didn’t change—but one of the most insane gags was something the show itself barely acknowledged.

Comments Off on FRIENDS’ 25th Anniversary: Looking Back at the Quasi-ER Crossover

Fall of 1994 was a big one for NBC, as the network debuted two shows that would go on to be massive hits: FRIENDS and ER.

But when the shows were in their freshman years, they had a memorable (but odd) crossover: ER’s George Clooney and Noah Wyle guest starred in the second part of FRIENDS’ February ’95 two-parter as doctors…but not their County General characters.

Of course, their characters got entangled with Monica and Rachel (who were attempting to date the doctors while also participating in insurance fraud, which may not have been their best idea), and quickly bolted when things got weird. But for an episode, FRIENDS and ER overlapped.
